Description

Travel through time following a charming little mouse called Minim who loves cheese and music. On this occasion, he finds himself bouncing around in Emily's skirt pocket as she joyfully skips down the stairs to her father's bustling workshop. A very special guest has just arrived, a musician deemed to be the best violinist in the world. Little do the luthiers know that they will come very close to witnessing a terrible accident: the destruction of Niccolo Paganini's most cherished instrument. Luckily, the little girl saves the day by miraculously catching the violin in midair before it hits the floor. Filled with gratitude, the maestro begins to play a piece for her—as if nothing else in the world ever existed. In addition to an illustrated story and introductory notes on the composer in French, this book is accompanied by a CD featuring recordings of the narrated story and the performance of the composition "Caprice 24." A unique code for the digital download of the recordings and a printable file of the illustrated story is also included.
